This beer was brewed in sept. 06 and has since then been aged in oak barrels until bottling on March 22. 2008. The beer is blended for roundness but is still very sour and a little bit acetic. We think our first attempt has been a great success and we will definitely try this again.

Dubbercody (213) - Vancouver, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Batch 49, brewed 10.10.06. Best before 30.04.11. Hand trade from johnmichaelsen..lugged from the Eastern US to the Pacific NW...excellent - and thank you! Dark reddish brown with a little head that leaves slim to no head. Smells of tart sourness Flavor brings along a nicely balanced sour that does not smack your face off, but still brings that sour tweak. Drinks easily and a nice brew for any sour fan. Excellent beer to pre-day pre-funk for a day of sours.

KoNrRiI (962) - Århus, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2016
0.5 bottle. Hazy, dark brown color and a small, off-white head. Aroma is vinous, acetic, yeasty, sour. Taste is obviously sour, once again acetic, a tad fruity. A medium body, a slick texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is even sourer than the rest, introduces strong notes of wood. Overall the beer is definitely too sour to be drinkable; however, I do enjoy feisty brews with flavors full of character. This one certainly falls into this category without offending.

bottle. deep mahogany red with minimal head. low carbonation. very tart with cranberry and lots of oak. rather thin body. i love sours, but this borders on too sour. interesting, but not among the best i’ve had of the style.

Holmen1 (4126) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 10, 2016
Flaske (batch 687, brygget 20.11.13) fra polets nettbutikk, hjemme: brunsvart med rød undertone. Svært kort skum. Aroma og (deilig!) smak av sure kirsebær, rips og oe lett rødvinsaktig. Tørr, snerpende vinøs avslutning. Slank for sitt vitamininnhold, så det byr ikke på problemer å helle den vellystig over drøvelen.

tomekboniek (365) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 4, 2015
Butelka. Barwa ciemno brązowa. Brak piany. Aromat kwaśny, winny, dziki. W smaku duża kwaśność wiśniowo-porzeczkowa, praktycznie brak nut beczkowych. Dodatkowo w smaku można doszukać się wyraźnych nut winnych charakterystycznych dla czerwonego wytrawnego wina. Goryczka niska, rozgrzewająca przełyk. Zdecydowanie ciekawe piwo, szkoda, że baczka tak słabo zaznaczona.

metalspice (443) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2015
svart med noen rød/lilla toner., nesten uten skum. Eik, eplekart, aske og lær i duften. Smaken er kompleks med flere lag av surhet. Eik fremtredende også i smaken. Noe bitterhet sammen med surheten. Lang ettersmak som også inneholder noe karamell. Tørr avslutning. Højdare!

Moebbels (619) - FINLAND - NOV 13, 2015
A clear red body with no foam. Nose is sour with sweet bourbony oak notes. Taste is quite sour with a lingering puckering finish. Low carbonation and oily medium palate. The oak comes through nicely but I find that it’s a bit too sour for my taste.

alteregoo (566) - POLAND - NOV 11, 2015
Piana sycząca, znika od razu do zera. Barwa ciemno czerwono brązowa, lekko mętna. Aromat kwaśny, wiśniowy, winny z nutą starego drewna, dzikich drożdży i octu balsamicznego. W smaku wita nas spora kwaśność wiśniowo porzeczkowa, lekka cierpkość dębowej beczki, zaraz za nią czerwone półwytrawne wino, by na końcu przejść w czereśniowo migdałowy, słodkawy posmak. Goryczka niewielka, wyraźnie pestkowa z delikatnie alkoholowym, przyjemnie rozgrzewającym finiszem. Nagazowanie niskie do średniego, orzeźwiające, ale nie wodniste w odczuciu, "bogate w doznania". Bardzo fajnie ułożone piwo - kwaśność o profilu czerwonego wytrawnego wina z fajnie zaznaczoną beczką i dzikością.
